    How Much Ammo to Raise Unwarranted Suspicion

    I see that I can buy ammo in bulk for 1,000 bullets at a time. This is the way I would go to have a long practice time before needing to reload. I also want to maintain a certain level of inventory, which is yet to be determined.

    If I bought ammo in bulk by the 1,000 for three or four different calibers, I am wondering if I would become suspicious even though I am stocking for the following reasons:

    1. Better pricing in bulk
    2. I believe in practicing with each weapon I might need to use for protection.
    3. Assuming one has to be home to receive it, it minimizes the days I would need to take off from work.
    4. I do not want to be under stocked if we ever find ourselves in a revolutionary war.
    5. I would expect ammo to rise in price, so I would buy tomorrow's ammo at today's price.

    I am just wondering how much is too much.

    Big Brother knows ( sweet sounding isn't it? Really sounds like it's family not some intrusive Gov't entity)....It's just if they'll correlate data to you specifically. WE the People no longer live in a free society. Expect intrusion and plan for the worst. May not happen but plan. IMHO.

    You are on a firearm forum site. You own firearms. You are contemplating ammo purchases. I assume you have talked about firearms with friends over the phone. You are an intelligent person (I read you are chemical engineer). You are already on the federal governments radar, just like we all are on this site.

    The only way you wouldn't be on their radar is if you figured out how to maintain your standard of living and somehow live off the grid.

    And to answer your question...this is a paraphrase of a quote, I believe is attributed to John D. Rockefeller. He was asked, "When will you know you've made enough millions?"... he responded, "The answer will always be the next​ million".

    The NSA put all Americans on the suspect list in my opinion.

    Yep. All of us on this forum are on some federal list somewhere. Personally, I think that puts me in good company.

  7. I agree with all the above. We're on this site because we own and/or carry firearms. I would be very disappointed if I haven't made the "Obama Enemy List" by now, Lord knows I've been working on it. I believe in the Constitution, The Bible, and Freedom. It makes me proud to associate myself with other Patriots on this site. Buy as much ammo as you want or are able to afford. Carry on!

    I agree! As a Patriot among you fine Patriots, I will continue with my constitutional right via the second amendment.

    I have taken classes that last from 1 ro 3 days that require you to arive with no less than 1000-2000 rounds of ammo for each of your weapons (handgun or rifle) so I don't see how purchasing 1,000 rounds at a time is a "large amount." If anyone does ask, tell them it's for a class, or regular range time, or cheaper to buy in bulk, or for an IDPA event.. or just tell them to go away and come back with a warrant.

    If you want samples of these classes, check out Tactical Response (James Yeager) or Steve Reichert, or Personal Defense Network (Rob Pincus)

    Thanks. I am taking a local NRA safety class that is required for getting a concealed permit. Once I do that, I will apply for the permit so it is in the works while I look for a weapon to carry since a shotgun won't work.

    I will definitely look at the Springfield and S&W that was mentioned earlier.
